Mmm mmm good!

I’m really not a huge sweets guy! I’ll almost never order dessert while out to eat.

20120723-000058.jpg It’s just not my cup of tea, or plate of sugar. I love my chrunchie snacks though. But because my wife is a sweets fanatic, I’m

Is it really your church

I’m a Christian! I am a member at church. I attend my church. I work in my church. You might say I’m pretty heavily involved in my church. I like my church. It’s MY CHURCH!

Hilton TV Adventures

So I was heading to Niagara falls this past weekend to attend a conference that was being held at the Hilton Fallsview Hotel. Now we are pretty good level Hilton Honors members and we usually stay either Hilton or Marriott brand properties. So I was pretty excited, I know the hotel is supposed to be pretty nice and recently completed a large renovation.

I called the hotel to book a room and asked about the conference rate, was told that it was a great rate but on a double queen room. Well if you know me, in a nice hotel… that just wont do. So I booked an upgraded suite that overlooked the falls. Why would you go to a hotel called ‘Fallsview’ without having a great view of the falls. Just makes sense, right? Right! Read more »
